Stop what you’re doing: New Scott Pilgrim trailer

New Scott Pilgrim trailer new Scott Pilgrim trailer new Scott Pilgrim trailer! Over the weekend about a hundred thousand of you became fans of the Scott Pilgrim movie page on Facebook and in return for such devotion, director Edgar Wright released the new movie trailer a week early.

So, okay, a new trailer. That often happens with exciting summer movies, especially comic book-related blockbusters. This one has a little more going for it, though, in that A.) It’s tremendous fun and B.) It tackles the biggest hesitance that fans of the Scott Pilgrim series are holding. One that could make or break the movie through word of mouth alone.

Namely, can Michael Cera bust out of his low-energy persona and make us believe he is Scott Pilgrim?

The answer is an emphatic yes. To me, anyway. Why don’t you see for yourself?

(WARNING: Trailer contains spoilers for all of the books, including the upcoming final volume.)


Chris Greenland would use subspace mostly for commuting purposes and only occasionally for climactic duels.

Spoilers for the book that's not even out yet? Lame!

(Thanks for warning me though, and just based on the comics and the first trailer I already know I want to see it anyway...)

Chuk--I've not read the comics at all (though after seeing this trailer, I think I might have to!), but the trailer didn't seem too spoilery to me. Actually, I just read somewhere that the ending of the movie will be quite different from the ending in the comics.

Could be wrong, but I don't think you need to avoid the trailer.

And yes, this movie looks waaaaay cool.

I saw an early screening of this movie (I know, I'd be jealous of me, too), and it was *awesome*. Looking forward to seeing it again in theaters. And yes, this is a great trailer.

Just to clarify the spoiler warning:

There's a new climactic moment from the final battle in the trailer, at the 2:08-2:11 mark, that may or may not be a spoiler in the final volume. (Like wsean said, the endings are different.) The moment may have already happened in the books, but I don't have them on hand to check.

They crossed the '60's campy Batman T.V. series with Street Fighter and not only got a graphic novel out of it, but at the same time made a movie. How sad and unimaginative. I know that by Christmas this will be in Wal-mart's $5 bin and by next year will be shown as a double feature on Syfy(lys) along with Dragon Ball Z in their Saturday night movies.

I don't know the character or the actor and suddenly I am in love with both.

I can't talk about the movie, but the graphic novels (five until now, sixth and last coming in a month or so) are nothing like your description and really, really better than either the Batman series or any Street Fighter game. If you have a chance, try and read them - you'll be surprised.

I reeeeeeally want to be excited about this movie, as I'm a HUGE Edgar Wright fan.

But I read the first Scott Pilgrim book and just thought it was lame. I know, I know. I'm apparently the only person on the PLANET to think so. But I was so bored with the first one that I don't care if I ever get to the rest of them or not.

But I WILL see this movie, because I know that the director of Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz (not to mention the hilarious Grindhouse trailer, "Don't") will give me something to work with.

@CGajo:

I'm just going by what I've been seeing of the trailers. The people over at
Comic Book Movie have been keeping up with all of the news about this, and many other movies as the name of the site implies. I'm severely unimpressed so far with what I've seen for this movie.

You might want to make a note in your article for this: the "spoilers" that you are talking about is not accurate. It may contain content that are in SOME of the books, but Edgar Wright specifically only used them as a guide, then went on his own for the ending of the movie. In fact, the final volume of Scott Pilgrim is still being written, according to Bryan Lee O'Malley's twitter, he is set to turn in the final volume sometime this week. (set to be released in July). Bryan Lee O'Malley (Author of Scott Pilgrim) have said that they will have different endings and doesn't include some content that was in the books.

You know, I actually liked the first book of this until the silly rock-band-fight-scene stuff. Then I put it down and walked away.
